Though USA scored an opening goal on 38 minutes, still Japan had possibility.

 

But everything has changed on 65 minutes.

 

Right back Kanzaburo Okada was sent off by a cynical foul, then Japan was forced to play with 10 players.

 

Also on 65 minutes, center back Yusuke Narazaki was replaced by forward Nobuyoshi Yamada.

Interview with Japan national coach

Interview with the Japan NC N-Kobayashi who is the manager of FC Sagami (2260539)

 

 

Reporter

“How do you think this result?”

 

Coach

“I had noticed that it was a hard match, but I’m really disappointed in the result”

 

 

Reporter

“Shouldn’t you have played more defensively?”

 

Coach

“Maybe.

Surely we had more defensive options.

But I thought Australia and Russia were stronger than USA, so I aimed to earn three points from this match.

Therefore I decided to give up possession and use formation which has defense and offense bonus”

 

 

Reporter

“About Kanzaburo Okada‘s sending off.

After that, why did you take a defender out in order to exchange for Nobuyoshi Yamada?”

 

Coach

“No, the substitution was not action for the red card.

The order has done because we were losing on 65 minutes.

Okada is an aggressive player.

I didn’t prepare for his sending off, it was my fault”
